Taylor Bennett is a major advocate for the LGBTQ community and homeless youth amongst other_x000D_
initiatives. Coming out in early 2017 as bi-sexual, he addressed: I think there's a lot of people - _x000D_
especially in the music community, especially in hip-hop - that don't feel okay with being themselves,_x000D_
that feel like being different is to be wrong. I've never shared that belief. My parents and my brother and_x000D_
my friends and anybody that I've ever surrounded myself with, we've always accepted and respected_x000D_
each other for who we are. That's something that I want my music to reflect as well. (The Fader, 2017)_x000D_
Taylor's debut album, Broad Shoulders, was released in 2015 and featured tracks with artists such as_x000D_
King Louie, Joey Purp, Chance the Rapper and more! The buzz around his first project also fueled a 13_x000D_
minute short film that was released in 2017. His sophomore album Restoration of an American_x000D_
Idol released in 2017 featured A-list collaborations with Jeremih, Raury, and Lil Yachty_x000D_
